Five Stars!

I’m going to listen and subscribe simply because of the comment from Cosmo12345.

The simple fact that Cosmosis decided to leave a negative comment based on the host’s usage of the word “whenever” over “when” and strong P’s tells me they’re the kind of person I hope get soaked by water from a bus driving over a puddle every... single ... day of their lives.
